Freezing in Bryce Canyon

altBryce Canyon has unbelievable canyons with hoodoos.  Hoodoos.  They remind me of the sand columns we would build on the beach by dripping wet sand in one spot until it forms a rippled tower.  Except Bryce’s sand columns are very large and very orange.  And over 9,000 feet above sea level.

altThe month of May temperatures are normally an average of 65 degrees (averages – sheesh!).  We hit 17 degrees last night.  The wind makes the daytime temperatures in the high 30s or low 40s too cold to linger outdoors.  Most of the hiking trails are closed due to ice, mud or snow.  Dang, it is cold!

altWe are sightseeing from the truck or running out to the viewpoint, a quick click of the camera and we are back inside!
